Earlier it was reported that the areas within a 20-kilometer zone around and behind the Japanese nuclear power plant emergency, "Fukushima-1", where the evacuated population will be divided into three zones based on the level of radiation exposure that people can get if they return to their homes .
As the broadcaster NHK, before anyone could return home residents in those areas where the exposure is less than 20 mSv per year. Communities where exposure is from 20 to 50 millisieverts a year, will receive the title "of restricted residence." In the third zone, where the return is problematic or impossible to enter towns and villages, where the exposure exceeds 50 millisieverts per year.
Recall, 16 December, Prime Minister Esihido node informed that ended the cold stop first, second and third reactors. The objectives of the second phase of elimination was stabilized below 100 degrees in the reactors, radiation reduction in the power and radiation levels at the plant. Note that the final dismantling troubled reactors, "Fukushima-1" takes 40 years.
